    Default Rocky Mountain State Games rimfire competition at risk of not happening

    The shooting event of the Rocky Mountain State Games is at risk of not happening in 2019. A friend that works at The Sports Corp and I would very much like to see it happen and are starting the investigation into how to make it a reality.

    The State Games of America (the National Championship of the State Games) has just published their 2019 rimfire format, and it's using the Rimfire Challenge Shooting Association?s (RCSA) rules. We'd like to see RMSGs have a similar format.

    But we need a lot of steel to do so, so this is a call for loaner steel.

    We'd need the loaner steel from early July to early August, maximum, for logistical reasons.

    We're talking .22 rimfire only, so it's easy on the steel. All steel is static (doesn't fall) and painted, racks are welcome but they'd be setup to be fixed. We need 8" and larger circular, square and rectangular plates (by the rules, 8" is the minimum size plate which eliminates most racks I've seen).

    If you've got steel you can loan and/or know folks/clubs/whatever I could contact to borrow steel, please either reply to this thread or email me at the address below. Please!

    I really hope we can pull this off.

    Thanks!

    They'll never take your "hunting rifle", they'll call it a "sniper rifle" first.

    Thanks Hoser!

    O2HeN2, can you let me know if you need any help. I am on the BOD of RCSA and as far as I know, we were not aware of the use of our rules. Would like to see what we can do to promote this to our sponsors and vendors. We will likely reach out to the national group after our meeting tomorrow, so if you know a specific person in charge of the rimfire portion, that would be good for us to know.
    Good Shooting, MarkCO

    Yes, thank you Hoser, and for the emails, too!

    I've got a PM out to MarkCO with my phone number to start that conversation as well.

    Hope I won't jinx anything, but I got a contact in the State Games, RCSA and found steel all in less than 48 hours.

    Thank you all!

    I have a good feeling about the State Games!

    People of the gun are made of 100% awesome.

    Looks like it’s handled but I have a bunch of 3/8” mild steel plate I could cut out with the plasma if needed

    Thanks! Still juggling all the data and waiting for more; I expect the dust to start settling mid-January at which point we'll know better what we need.

    Just a quick announcement: Thanks to everyone's help, shooting is going to be part of the Rocky Mountain State Games this year!

    We still have some ducks to get in a row, but check it out, shooting is already "penciled in" on the RMSG splash page!

    It'll be a one-day match, on one of the following dates: July 20,21 or 27,28.

    We'll be following the Rimfire Challenge Shooting Association's rules for open class (all guns), with the following modifications:
    1. There will be a separate handgun and rifle competition (you can enter both at a discount if you wish).
    2. There will be four strings on each stage, worst run thrown out (RCSA rules say five strings).

    Other than that, we'll stick to the RCSA rules.

    Depending on how well this flies, we'll see if we can make it a full-fledged RCSA match next year.

    Hope to see some of you at the match!

    Again, thanks for everyone's help to make this come together so quickly!
